Spurs booed off after 2-0 home defeat to Villa

Manager Unai Emery praised his Aston Villa team after they increased the pressure on Tottenham boss Antonio Conte with a “fantastic” away win.

An error by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in his first game back since the World Cup allowed Emiliano Buendia to score, before Douglas Luiz doubled the lead at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Villa have won back-to-back away league games as they improve under Emery.

“We are so happy. We competed very well,” he said.

Lacklustre Spurs, who fell out of the Premier League top four on Saturday, have now won only two of their past seven matches.

France keeper Lloris endured a shocking moment in the 50th minute. He spilled Luiz’s long-range effort and Ollie Watkins squared the rebound for Buendia to slam home.

Luiz started and finished the move to make it 2-0, sliding a pass to John McGinn before racing on to receive the return and chipping cutely past Lloris.

Emery told the BBC: “Spurs were pushing us and we had options in the attacking third, and that was good for our confidence. Adding three more points was fantastic.”

Spurs were booed off at the final whistle, while some fans directed angry chants towards chairman Daniel Levy.
